Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Shreveport LA
1154 PM CDT FRI JUL 22 2016

.DISCUSSION...
Have updated the forecast to include mention of chance of isolated
showers and thunderstorms spreading Southwest across parts of
Southwest and South Central Arkansas and parts of extreme
Northeast Texas for the late night and early morning hours. /06/

&&

.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 954 PM CDT FRI JUL 22 2016/

DISCUSSION...
For the 10 PM update have removed the rain chances for much of the
overnight hours except for late tonight when have added a slight
for the East and Southeast sections around the Southern periphery
of the mid-upper level ridge of high pressure and with the
approach of disturbances in the 7H and 5H level around the
periphery of the ridge aloft. On the surface, an outflow boundary
from convection over Mississippi may also contribute to rain
chances during the day Saturday if it moves into parts of the
forecast area. Minor adjustments to the cloud cover and
temperature and dew point trends but no other significant
changes. /06/

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 754 PM CDT FRI JUL 22 2016/

AVIATION...
For the 23/00Z TAFS...VFR conditions to dominate this period as
only some patchy fog may briefly restrict visibility near sunrise
on Saturday, mainly at the LFK terminal. Otherwise, expect another
round of isolated to scattered convection on Saturday afternoon as
the upper level ridge of high pressure becomes less influential on
our weather. Winds will remain generally light and occasionally
variable but maintain a primary S/SW component during the daytime
hours. A mixture of daytime CU around 5KFT with some mid and high
clouds will repeat on Saturday. Convection will diminish by early
evening on Saturday with the setting sun. /19/
